Very warmly met by all staff members, everyone is extremely helpful .
Location is excellent, walk everywhere , HOHO sightseeing busses stop right outside. Very close to wonderful restaurants.
Easy walk to castle with kids. Don't miss the Saturday farmers market nearby! Groceries easily available from Tesco, Sainsbury almost on doorstep- made it very easy with kids. Breakfast buffet was excellent to start day of sightseeing :)
Pool, gym and steam sauna little hard to find, but very nice!
Room service fare was ok.
Kids enjoyed the pizza - very generous servings, easy for evenings when their poor legs can't carry them anymore :)
We requested a 2 queen bed room for the kids, room on second floor was very spacious! Beds were extremely comfy, room has tassimo machine with plenty of tea coffee and milk! Nice sized bathroom with large tub, bath toys for kids were a nice touch :)
One lunch at peacock alley - very good, but food choices are plentiful outside too.
Thanks for the excellent stay- highly recommended !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian, or the "Caley" as it has become affectionately known among Edinburgh folk, was and still is the epitome of style and excellence. The large, rose-coloured Permian sandstone facade, quarried in Dumfries, dominates the skyline of the city's west end. The hotel has not only remained a focal point for more than one hundred years, but a symbol of the very best of Scottish hospitality. The Caley's pivotal position at the very heart of Edinburgh has always been its greatest asset. Created out of the 19th century railway boom, the five star hotel is looking to the future with confidence and pride in its ability to keep pace with the times. The hotel's reputation is as justified now as it was when the hotel first opened its doors in 1903. ... more less
